Poll:
Should the blown call be overturned, giving Galarraga a perfect game?

NEW YORK -  Bud Selig won't reverse an umpire's admitted blown call that cost Armando Galarraga a perfect game.

Selig says Major League Baseball will look at expanded replay and umpiring, but not the botched call Wednesday night.

Umpire Jim Joyce says he made a mistake on what would've been the final out in Detroit, where the Tigers beat Cleveland 3-0. The umpire personally apologized to Galarraga.
